Sonny Landreth’s album, Bound By The Blues, marks a return to the slide guitarist's musical roots, presenting a bold, big-sounding collection of tracks that swagger like the best of classic rock, climb to stratospheric heights of jazz informed improvisation, and inevitably remain deeply attached to the elemental emotional and compositional structures that are at the historic core of the blues.

The lean Mississippi native, who grew up in Lafayette, Louisiana, has enjoyed a prolific career for decades, dating back to his solo debut album Blues Attack in 1981. Although that album fanned the flames of his reputation as an emerging force in roots music, Landreth kept a parallel career going as a celebrated sideman and session player. Over the years he performed and recorded with artists that include John Hiatt, British blues innovator John Mayall, and he toured as a member of Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band. He also collaborated with Eric Clapton, and has performed at all of Clapton's prestigious Crossroads Guitar Festivals since 2004.

Along the way Landreth has continued to develop his vision and his musical voice, growing increasingly original and diverse, expanding from blues, zydeco, folk, country and jazz into increasingly category blurring musical excursions like Bound By the Blues. He offers, "Developing a style and an approach that is your own musically is not something to be taken for granted, I'm at a point in life where I want to make the most of every moment I can and that changes your perspective, your priorities and how you relate to everyone else. And at the end of the day, I think that's the essence of what I wanted to express with Bound By The Blues.”

Change is something that takes a little getting used to. If you need proof of this, ask the soulful singer-songwriter Sarah Borges. After a long and successful stint with her band, The Broken Singles, 2011 marked the band’s breakup and Sarah embarking on a solo career. Whether it be through performances or her writing, Massachusetts native Borges has learned to dazzle – and do it well. That ability can be heard all over her 2014 Radio Sweetheart album, as well as her follow-up, Good and Dirty EP. She attributes that ability to a very eclectic sound, which she comes by naturally, she says, “I would say that my sound is straight up rock and roll, but it’s the sum total of what my record collection looks like. The new record is certainly more Americana than the last record was. It’s also more rock than the last record. I would say that it’s a version of the live shows – a lot of loud guitars and loud singing. You can certainly dance to it.”
